Wondering what vegan gifts to get your vegan friends and family? Looking for the best vegan gifts for her (or vegan gifts for him), but no clue where to start?

Whether you’re searching for vegan birthday presents or Christmas gifts for a vegan, I’ve got suggestions for good gifts for vegans for every occasion.

This year’s holiday season is more unusual than any ever due to the pandemic, so these vegan Christmas gifts are all available online so that you can do all your shopping from home! Plus, if you’re unable to see friends and families face-to-face due to restrictions, you can send the gift right to their door. :)

Top vegan gifts:

And if you’re vegan, send this list to your family to avoid those awkward moments when you open a present and realise it’s not vegan!

Read on to see more than a hundred gifts for a vegan.

 

what to/not to get

What to get & what NOT to give a vegan

Vegan gift giving needn’t be complicated, but it can be. Especially if you know and love a vegan but aren’t sure what to get them or even 100% certain what is and isn’t vegan. Vegan gift giving can be fraught because so many seemingly innocuous products aren’t vegan — like that shower gel you always used to buy Anton before he went vegan, or the sweater you found that would be perfect for Susie, except it contains silk.

Here’s what you should never buy a vegan:

  • Non-vegan food (food that contains meat, fish, eggs, dairy, honey, gelatin, whey or other animal-derived ingredients)
  • Makeup that has been tested on animals or that contains non-vegan ingredients (frequently used non-vegan ingredients include lanolin, beeswax and carmine)
  • Bath and body products that have been tested on animals or that contain non-vegan ingredients
  • Clothes made out of fur, leather, wool or silk
  • Coats or bedding made with down or feathers
  • Jewellery made with leather, feathers or pearls
  • Homewares made with bone china
  • Candles or other items made with beeswax or other bee products
  • Non-vegan wine, champagne, beer or cider – that’s right, some alcohols aren’t vegan as some brands are filtered through egg whites or fish bladder. Find out which ones are vegan on Barnivore.

 

Help! I’m a vegan and I don’t want to get non-vegan gifts!

On the other side of the coin, if you’re vegan it can be incredibly awkward to receive presents that aren’t vegan. We all want vegan presents that we can appreciate and use, so take the time to educate your friends and family about what is and isn’t vegan, or give them some suggestions of what you’d like to receive (by forwarding this list, for example!).

You could put together a list of what you’d like, whether that’s a vegan beauty box or a vegan online cooking class. Make it easy on your family and friends to buy you vegan gifts you’ll love.

And Cadry’s got you covered on how to deal if you do end up receiving a non-vegan gift.

eco

How to have a more eco friendly holiday season this year

Want to make your holidays more eco-friendly? Here are some ideas on how to make your holiday season kinder to Mother Nature this year:

1. Serve up a vegan meal this year. It’s more eco-friendly and there are many great vegan holiday recipes these days. Plus, your vegan and vegetarian guests will thank you! Click here for some vegan holiday recipe inspiration.

2. Give experiences, not possessions. When you’re picking out presents for friends and family, choose experiences rather than physical goods. For example, you could gift online vegan cooking classes, a spa day or Hotels.com gift card.

3. Give fewer gifts. Not to sound like a grinch, and I’m definitely not saying you have to cut out gifts to your nearest and dearest, but has your gift list grown longer in recent years? Can you cut it back? Do you really need to buy every single one of your coworkers a gift, or could you share some homemade cookies or gift bath salts you make yourself? (Not only will it be more eco-friendly but could save you a lot of money!)

4. Wrap gifts in reusable wrapping, like this reusable fabric wrap (that happens to be super cute!), available on Etsy. Or, use a scarf or old newspapers.

5. Get crafty and make your own decorations using pine cones or pine boughs found on the forest floor during a winter walk, or paper chains if you don’t have a forest nearby.

6. Use energy efficient LED lightbulb strands.

7. Consider sending e-cards or send recycled cards (or make your own!). You can even try hand delivering (by bike or walking) to friends and family who live close by.

8. Many vegan companies are eco-conscious and are trying to reduce their waste and carbon emissions, for example by utilising lower-impact packing materials. I especially like shopping on Etsy, which features mainly independent crafters and creators, because many vegan-friendly shops on Etsy are also eco-conscious. Plus Etsy announced recently it will carbon offset all of their shipping.

The Best High-Speed Blender for Vegan Cooking

Like many vegans, I'm slightly obsessed with my blender and have even taken it around the world with me. A good blender is an essential item in any well-stocked vegan kitchen and they make a great vegan Christmas gift (or vegan birthday gifts, Hanukkah gifts, or any-occasion presents) for anyone who loves cooking. It's durable, with a heavy duty glass jug, and blends smoothies and crushes ice to perfection.

Instant Pot

Instant Pots have topped the sales charts for 2 years running, and are fast becoming a 'must-have' kitchen appliance.

They're incredibly useful for quickly cooking beans from scratch, making soups, stews, rice and even non-dairy yogurt. They can be used as a slow cooker or pressure cooker.

The most popular is the 6-quart option, which is neither too large nor too small for most kitchens. Click here to check prices.

 

The longest-lasting, most durable food processor (for easy homemade nut butters, pesto and hummus)

This Cuisinart food processor is one of my favourite kitchen implements. It's perfect for making pesto, hummus, nut butter and even vegan cheese. It's also great for quickly chopping vegetables.

Naturally nonstick, chemical coating-free cast iron frying pan

I love cast iron, because it's relatively inexpensive, incredibly durable (these things have been passed down through families for hundreds of years!), work on any cooking surface including campfires, can go directly from stove to oven, are naturally non-stick, add iron to your food (nutrition!) and most importantly can double as a weapon of self-defence if an intruder breaks into your house.

Lodge are the cast iron manufacturer of choice, and I recommend this 10 1/4 inch skillet. It's just the right size.

The best value, high-performing ice cream maker

Making your own vegan ice cream is pretty exciting.

The 2-quart automatic ice cream maker gets a lot of use every summer.

It would make the perfect gift!

 

Hurraw lip balm

When it comes to vegan lip balm, there's only one brand (not literally, I mean in my heart), and that's Hurraw. All-vegan, raw, organic and fair trade, this stuff is amazing.

Men's shaving brush

Looking for vegan gift ideas for him? For reasons unbeknownst to everyone, including me (I think it was one of those internet rabbit hole-type situations) I spent some time awhile back reading about men's shaving brushes and soaps. From what I read, it seems that using a shaving brush offers the best shaving experience and is likely easier on sensitive skin than not using a brush.

Many shaving brushes aren't vegan (they're made with animal hair bristles), but these ones come with synthetic bristles.  They'd make great vegan gifts for men who like shaving brushes.

Rice bones

Great for dogs who love to chew, these "bones" are completely meat- and cruelty-free and made of rice! They make the best vegan presents for dogs.

My dog absolutely ADORES them -- though be warned, they can be a little messy. And always keep your eye on the dog while they're chewing anything destructible like this in case of choking. Though they're much safer than bones (which aren't vegan anyway!), which can splinter and cause choking.

Handmade vegan dog biscuits (UK only)

I brought a pack of the peanut butter and cinnamon dog biscuits from Lincoln's Lunchbox back from VegFest one year, and my puppy loved them (see photographic evidence above). They're £3.49 for a bag and they do a range of other flavours too. Just a word of caution though - as tasty as your pup might find them, they don't taste good to humans (or at least not to this one!).

 

Vegan dog treats

Bell-filled balls for cats

My friend's cat, who was never very playful, refused to play with most cat toys (even catnip!), apart from those little plastic balls filled with bells. She loved chasing them! Just be careful to only use them under supervision as some more curious cats may try to chew on the ball, and don't give these to households with dogs as the dogs will most likely chew them.

  1. This is such a very cool list. I have now added several new cookbooks to my must-buy list, and it’s all your fault. That said, Booja Booja are always on my must-buy list!

  2. Just a note about Little Secrets chocolate candies: Not all of them are vegan! The pumpkin spice, peanut butter, and coconut ones contain dairy.

    • Hi Amara, thanks so much about the warning! They’re not available where I am and I’d only read about them – what I read led me to believe all the flavours were vegan. I’ve updated the post to add in this additional info and warn people to read the ingredients and avoid those flavours.

  3. This is the best vegan gift guide EVER! Thank you so much for including Brownble’s online cooking classes on this awesome list Caitlin! We’re beyond thrilled to be in such good company! Happy dance!

    • Yay!! I’m happy to have found your classes and be able to recommend them to anyone who’s interested in getting back in the kitchen and learning some plant-based culinary skills! There are SO many great vegan products out there these days but I think yours really stands out because of the way you are so great at expressing yourself in your videos. :) So glad I could include you on the list!

  4. Hi Caitlin – This is a REALLY thorough guide on gifts for vegans. I love it! We also have a gift guide over at Urban Vegan, but after reading through your article, I think we’re going to have to go back and make some changes lol. Always glad to meet people who are pushing the cause forward. Cheers!

    • Thank you so much! :) So glad you enjoyed the guide. It took a long time to put all the information together but I think the comprehensiveness was worth the time and effort. I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with yours, please let me know when you’ve re-done it! And thanks for all you’re doing for the cause too! :)
